Surreptitiously,
they came
ten assassins,
by boat
slipped into
Mumbai.

Hidden,
tools of slaughter;
grenades, bullets,
automatic weapons,

Excellent Writing Bob! Sadly, there are relatively few humans whom have the spiritual insight and caring of raising human consciousness for Love and Peace. Controversy of flawed religion and inhuman politics provoke mostly all wars. Yes, I wholeheartedly agree, you are quite profound when you express; 'Let us all promote a belief, a faith in the humanity and togetherness of us all.' Amen! Shalom, louie

You have a gentle heart Bob and wrote this so well. I can see from the other comments how you have touched people with your plea. If only the violence would stop. It seems to me that the perpertrators of these crimes are not religious people but people who just enjoy violence, killing and mayhem and use this religious thing as an excuse. There is no excuse, there never will be. Ruthie

It only happens because we look for the differences and (if you just use this site as an example) there are plenty of simularities that we could draw on to bring us together. Perhaps we poets from all the different countries, creeds and ethnic backgrounds could each give one poem each devoted to peace as an anthology. There I go again dreaming.

I saw the entire drama live on TV.....Flesh and blood are gods.....after all. What power! ! What magic! ! What madness! ! What SILENCE....What heaven....What angels....! ! ! What goals! ! Heaven on EARTH! ! . What blindness! ! What intellectualism! ! What justifications! ! Some God evidently wants to RULE us! ! With guns...and we aren't bulletproof...as yet.....in the lottery of flying bullets, your religion doesn't have any guarantee from invincibility...Shanti...Shanti...Shanti.... Cheers. Subroto

wow! ! ! ! my dear sir.... this is very visual indeed.... well true this carries a great message... and related to a real event...... i felt like reading a crime novel... i mean people have written such stuff, from real life too.. for instance Fredrick Forsyth, wrote 'Day of the Jackal'... about the assassination of president De Gaul... described how the assassin's mind works.... and how he lay out his plan.... I think your poem you said it all too.... I very much enjoyed this piece.... with lots of love shan

Hi Bob, I thank Mamtaji for pointing out both you and your poem to me. A wonderful poem descibing the thoughtless carefulness behind each terroristic activity and the need for an united stand. Coming to your message box, with a request too. Angel
